As busy bees, we find it hard to drop everything and go on a long trip and be away from work but we have found that doing weekend getaways has helps us get out of our routines and reset our minds to the hustle of Silicon Valley.We recently booked a weekend trip in Huntington Beach and it was a perfect place to reset and relax. We flew into LAX and rented a red sports car to really enjoy the long drive down the coast to our hotel. It was totally worth it. We stopped at the Santa Monica pier for a quick bite to eat and got lost a couple times.
Where we stayed
Paséa Hotel & Spa – this place was perfect for a last minute trip to get away for a weekend because we didn’t have to do any research or figure out what to do while we were in Huntington Beach. The hotel has a great location and you can walk to the pier, rent bikes, go to the beach / have a view of the ocean, walk to the outdoor mall nearby and all the nearby restaurants and cafes. They have a beautiful spa and lovely pool lounge area. There are rentable cabanas and beach beds too so you ensure a spot when it gets too busy. Their restaurant is so good! We ate there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also have a unique rooftop bar for lounging out at night with a beautiful treetop inspired bar and fire pits.
What we did
We mostly relaxed to be honest. We hung out at the pool, ate a lot of great food, walked around and chilled at the pier. The weekend we were there, a jetski race was happening at the beach so that was awesome to watch!
